Muttaqi congratulates Rashid Khan via telephone for historic win

KABUL: The Acting Foreign Minister Mawlavi Amir Khan Muttaqi, in a telephonic discussion with Rashid Khan, congratulated the historic win of the country’s national cricket team against Bangladesh. Muttaqi instructed the team’s captain to provide guidance to the Afghanistan national cricket team and extended congratulations to the nation as they advance to the semi-finals of the 2020 World Cup, according to a statement from the ministry on Tuesday. In a thrilling match, Afghanistan emerged victorious against Bangladesh by a margin of eight runs, securing their first-ever place in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, a dramatic step that resulted in Australia’s elimination from the tournament. Having chosen to bat first, Afghanistan faced a challenging situation, managing to score a modest 115-5. However, the bowlers displayed remarkable skill and determination, eventually dismissing Bangladesh for 105 with only seven balls remaining, leading to a tense and memorable victory. In the upcoming semi-finals, Afghanistan will face South Africa, while England will compete against India in the other semi-final match. The Kabul Times
